Martha’s Vineyard Center for Living announced the staff of the Supportive Day Program this spring completed the Dementia Certificate Program for Professionals Levels I and II taught by Suzanne Faith, Clinical Director of Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services of Cape Cod & the Islands.
Upon her return, Suzanne began working with museum educators at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis to help establish an ongoing program for the local Alzheimer’s community.
Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services’ director selected to attend national dementia training
Ms. Faith was inspired to start this program after reading about Dr. Zeisel, the president of Heathstone Alzheimer’s Family Foundation. Dr. Zeisel had collaborated with the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and he had begun a program there for people with dementia. This program was so well received that MetLife Foundation awarded it a grant of $450,000 to expand nationwide.
